My problem with this approach is that the bytes get slightly misaligned
when adding the <>. Maybe if we aligned as:

dst:
00000000: <33> 0a 60 12 00 a8 00 00 00 00 <8e> 6b 33 0a 60 12
00000010: 00 00 00 00 <00> a8 8e 6b 33 0a 00 00 00 00
result->expected:
00000000: <31> 0a 60 12 00 a8 00 00 00 00 <81> 6b 33 0a 60 12
00000010: 00 00 00 00 <01> a8 8e 6b 33 0a 00 00 00 00

Although I don't know exactly how we can produce this output. I was
using hex_dump_to_buffer to produce the hexdump, so maybe I need to
change the strategy to generate the hexdump.

I guess the KASAN approach could be easier to implement. But I guess it
can turn out to be a little polluted if many bytes differ. For example:

dst:
00000000: 33 31 31 31 31 31 31 31 31 31 8e 31 33 0a 60 12
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
00000010: 00 00 00 00 00 a8 8e 6b 33 0a 00 00 00 00
^
result->expected:
00000000: 31 0a 60 12 00 a8 00 00 00 00 81 6b 33 0a 60 12
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
00000010: 00 00 00 00 01 a8 8e 6b 33 0a 00 00 00 00
^

I don't know exactly with option I lean.


Thank you for your inputs, Daniel!
